French Country Kitchen Decorating

A French Country Kitchen on La Fête Nationale

Currently coveting a French country kitchen? I'm not surprised! A kitchen invoking the French country feel is charming and rustic. Its mantra is "loved in and lived in." There's no better day to share the look than Bastille Day — the French National Day. Interested in the details of what makes a kitchen French country? Read more!

  • The Colors: Everything about a French country kitchen invokes a natural vibe. Colors should enhance the natural wood not take away from making it the focus. The walls of a French country kitchen are typically a crisp white or buttery yellow; accents come in cobalt blue or rooster red.
  • The Lighting: Abundant lighting is integral to the French country feel. Think wrought-iron chandeliers and lots of open windows to help light come flooding in whenever possible.
  • The Furniture: It's all about beautiful wood and wrought-iron furniture. A French country kitchen traditionally comes with a large, wooden farmhouse-style table, perfect for big dinner parties. Don't worry about hiding things for storage. Consider a baker's rack or open, built-in shelving.
  • Accessorize It: Hung copper pots and pans and the rooster motif are a huge part of the French country feel. If you want to bring a small taste of Provencal life to your home for Bastille Day, consider my favorite part of herbes de provence: lavender. Grab a bundle the next time you're at your local farmers market. Breathe deep, and enjoy.
